Twins' Carlos Correa: Pops third homer
Correa went 1-for-5 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 10-7 win over the Royals.
Brad Keller hung a sinker over the heart of the plate in the top of the fourth inning and Correa capitalized, sending it over the fence in left center field for his third homer of the year. The shortstop has hit safely in five straight games, and in nine contests since returning from a finger injury he's batting .333 (12-for-36) with four doubles, a homer, five runs and five RBI....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Day off Sunday
Correa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Correa started the past three games after being reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, and he'll head to the bench after going 5-for-13 with two doubles, two walks, three RBI and three runs during that span. Nick Gordon will start at shortstop and bat seventh in his place.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Scores twice in return
Correa went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI on Wednesday against the Athletics.
Correa returned from the injured list after recovering from a finger injury that cost him nearly two weeks. He singled and scored his first time at the plate and followed that up with an RBI double in the fourth frame. Correa has lacked power early on in the campaign, though the recent uptick in offense around the league bodes well for his potential to experience improved results.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Set to return from IL on Wednesday
Correa (finger) will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's series finale in Oakland, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Athletics that Royce Lewis would be sent back to Triple-A St. Paul, clearing a spot on the 26-man active roster for Correa, who hasn't played since May 5 due to the right middle finger bone bruise. Though Lewis performed as arguably the Twins' top hitter during his 11-game run as the everyday shortstop, Minnesota won't be too disappointed to usher Correa back into the lineup. Prior to suffering the injury, Correa was hitting .255 with two home runs across 103 plate appearances in his first season in Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Reinstated from 10-day IL
The Twins reinstated Correa (finger) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Correa sustained a finger injury May 5, and although he avoided a fracture, he still sat out nearly two weeks. The 27-year-old will serve as Minnesota's clear top shortstop now that he's healthy, while Royce Lewis will head to the minors to get more consistent playing time at positions other than shortstop. Prior to his absence, Correa hit .255/.320/.372 with two homers, five doubles, 12 runs and 11 RBI over 24 games.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Not in Tuesday's lineup
Correa (finger) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics and remains on the 10-day injured list.
Previous reports indicated that Correa would return from the injured list to play Tuesday, but if that happens, it would be in a bench role, which seems unlikely. The Twins do still believe he could return this series, per MLB.com, which would make Wednesday his new expected return date, as the team has an off day Thursday before traveling to Kansas City on Friday. Royce Lewis will get at least one more start at shortstop as a result.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Expected back Tuesday
The Twins plan to activate Correa (finger) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game in Oakland, Damin Esper of MLB.com reports.
Minnesota already opened up one spot on the 26-man active roster by designating reliever Jharel Cotton for assignment after Monday's 3-1 win in the series opener, but the Twins will have to make an additional move to clear room for Correa and starting pitcher Dylan Bundy (illness), who is scheduled to come off the COVID-19 IL to take the hill Tuesday. The Twins could open up another spot by optioning top prospect Royce Lewis to Triple-A St. Paul, even though the rookie posted a solid .763 OPS over 10 games while stepping in as the primary shortstop during Correa's absence. Even if Minnesota elects to keep Lewis around in a utility role, Correa should immediately step back into an everyday role at shortstop now that his bruised right middle finger is no longer causing him complications in the field or when he swings a bat....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Could return during Oakland series
Manager Rocco Baldelli stated Monday that Correa (finger) is "very close to returning," Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Correa revealed over the weekend that his bruised right middle finger is starting to feel better, and Baldelli believes the shortstop could return to action over the next few days, per Helfand. He was 6-for-20 with a home run, two doubles, three RBI and three runs scored through five games in May prior to suffering the injury.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Starting to feel better
Correa (finger) said Saturday that he's starting to feel better, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Correa was recently placed on the 10-day injured list due to his right middle finger contusion, but he was able to participate in throwing and hitting drills prior to Saturday's game against the Guardians. The 27-year-old is hopeful that he'll be able to return after spending the minimum of 10 days on the injured list, and he's eligible to be activated as early as Monday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Hoping for minimum stay
Correa (finger) hopes to return from the 10-day injured list after a minimum-length stay, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
The Twins tried to give Correa a chance to avoid the injured list as he recovers from a bruised finger, but it turns out that he'll need at least 10 days to heal, as he was still feeling pain while hitting and throwing Monday. His placement on the injured list was backdated to Thursday, so he's eligible to return Monday in Oakland. Royce Lewis should continue to serve as the primary shortstop until then.... See More ...

Twins' Carlos Correa: Lands on injured list
Correa landed on the injured list with a right middle finger contusion Tuesday.
It initially looked as though Correa had broken his finger after he was hit by a pitch Thursday against the Orioles, though tests later revealed that he was merely dealing with a bruise. The Twins gave him a few days to see if he would heal fast enough to avoid the injured list, but it turns out he'll need more time to heal. The move was made retroactive to Friday, so Correa will be eligible to return next Monday. Royce Lewis should continue to serve as the team's primary shortstop until Correa returns.... See More ...

Twins' Carlos Correa: Expected to go on IL
The Twins are expected to place Correa (finger) on the 10-day injured list, possibly as soon as Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Though Correa's initial diagnosis of a broken right middle finger proved erroneous, he continues to deal with bruising and soreness with the digit and will be out of the lineup for the fourth game in a row Tuesday against the Astros. Hayes notes that while Correa hasn't experienced any setbacks with the finger, he still needs about 3-to-4 more days to completely heal up from the injury, and the Twins can't afford to play a man short in their series with Houston. Assuming Correa goes on the IL, Royce Lewis would continue to serve as the Twins' everyday shortstop for the rest of the week.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Unlikely to play Tuesday
Correa (finger) said Tuesday's series opener against the Astros is "not a realistic day to come back," Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Although Correa isn't dealing with a fracture in his right middle finger, he's been held out of the lineup for three consecutive games and is still dealing with soreness. He plans to take some dry swings Monday, but it seems likely that he'll be held out for at least one more matchup. Assuming Correa is unavailable against his former team Tuesday, Royce Lewis would likely draw another start at shortstop.... See More ... See Less
